Best bound for region

Tayler NealeAlbany Advertiser

Some of the State’s top croquet players will converge on Albany for the Valentines Tournament at Gomm Park Croquet Club this weekend.

The tournament, now in its second year, will draw players from all over WA, including York, Narrogin, Bunbury and Perth.

This year two players from the State team, Max Woolf and Kim Reynolds, both from Bunbury, will compete in the two-day event, which has 23 pairs playing off in three separate divisions.

Four pairs from the local club will try their luck in the B-block and C-block, with teams allocated to a division based on their handicap.

Tournament director John Kenworthy said the club was hoping to build on the success of 2016’s event.

“After last year we had such a phenomenal turnout and response so we’ve booked it in up until 2021 in the State croquet calendar,” he said

“Everyone (should) come out and have a look and maybe they’ll like what they see and want to learn to play the game.”

Games will run from 9am-5pm on Saturday and from 9am-noon on Sunday.
